Human bones have been found near a homeless encampment in Redding.
A community clean-up crew being supervised by Redding police found the remains on Wednesday while the workers were clearing away a camp near the Sacramento River. The camp was on the east side of the river near the Cypress Street Bridge, according to a police press release.
Evidence at the scene was processed by police investigators, the Shasta County Coroner's Office and the Human Identification lab from California State University, Chico.
Police said there is no further information related to identification or cause of death. Additional details will be released after the skeletal remains are analyzed, police said.
